Australian tax transparency

To encourage increased public disclosure of tax information by companies that carry on business in Australia, the Board of Taxation has developed the voluntary Tax Transparency Code (TTC). The TTC is set out in the Board of Taxation’s Final Report on a Tax Transparency Code (February 2016), and provides a set of principles and minimum standards to guide medium and large businesses on public disclosure of tax information. Vicinity Centres believes that greater tax transparency and understanding is necessary to maintain confidence and strength in Australia’s economy, and is committed to being a responsible taxpayer that endeavours to comply with all applicable Federal and State laws. Accordingly, Vicinity Centres strongly supports this initiative, and has adopted the TTC in presenting its disclosures of tax information.

Vicinity Centre’s tax disclosures for the year ended 30 June 2016 have been made through the 2016 Annual Report. The extract of this Tax Transparency report is also available for download from the Tax related documents section below.

October 2014 – FDC Simplification

March 2014 – Internalisation of CFX

In March 2014, the management of CFX was internalised.

As a result, CFX2 was de-stapled from CFX1. Each CFX Co share was then stapled to a CFX1 unit to comprise CFX stapled securities.
